All Hail China

China’s Chang’e 3 moon landing. Awesome. The Indian Mars mission, and now this are all great developments. Accomplishments of this order indicate the level of mathematical sophistication reached by a nation or humanity in general (which is the only type of thought that matters, all the rest are derivatives of mathematics).

There is a specific level of math you need to get to the moon for instance; u need Kalman Filters which provides a way to get accurate information out of inaccurate (noisy) data. Without it, you can fire off to go to the moon, but end up in Idaho.
